La Teste Yearling sale : A symbolic top price and a 23% increase

The seventh edition of the La Teste September yearling sale recorded good results thanks to the quality of yearlings consigned and to the increasing number of buyers.

The aggregate went from €2,982,500 in 2013 to €3,680,000 (+23%). The average and median were down slightly on last year, going respectively from €18,437 to €17,609 and from €15,000 to €14,000. The clearance rate of 81% was satisfactory, the catalogue being superior by 30% compared to last year.

Tattersalls, Europe's leading bloodstock auctionneers, has annouced that it has formed a strategic alliance with the young sales company osarus. The alliance will see close ties between the two companies with Tattersalls providing logistical and financial support. With Tattersalls notoriety and the work accomplished by Osarus, the french bloodstock scene should develop to the benefit of french breeders.

Commenting on the new association, Tattersalls Chairman Edmond Mahony said;

"This new alliance is an exciting venture for both Tattersalls and Osarus. We have been closely observing the progress and development of Osarus for a while now and have been enormously impressed with the way in which the team has established a niche in the french marcket in a relatively short space of time.Osarus is a french company working assiduously for french breeders and we hope that our new arrangement will allow then to continue to develop and build upon the sccess that they have worked so hard to achieve in recent years.

"Our involvement with Osarus also reflects the importance that Tattersalls has always placed on building and strengthening relationships in key markets around the world. The french racing and breeding  industry is well structured and well funded and the close ties between Tattersalls and Osarus emphasise the high regard in which we hold both Osarus and the wider french industry."

Emmanuel Viaud, Managing Directornof Osarus, commented:

"This is a very significant moment in the continuing development of Osarus.This strategic alliance with the leading bloodstock auctionneers in europe is a huge endorsement for the young agency that we are and for the french bloodstock industry in general.

We are a young, ambitious team with a vision based on our confidence in the french breeding industry and we are delighted that Tattersalls shares our vision. Osarus has enjoyed its best ever year in 2012, in partucular at our flagship September yearling sale at la Teste. With our new partners Tattersalls, we look forward to building on this success and to continuing to provide the possible service to french breeders in the years to come." 


With an important percentage of horses sold (near 80%) and a turnover of €717,600, Osarus has ended its November sale at Le Lion d'Angers, as well as the year, on a positive note.

The dynamic which began in April with the launching of the Pornichet all weather track Breeze-up, followed by the La teste September yearling sale, was confirmed during Osarus' last sale of the year.

The customer prospecting which began in the spring has been fruitful, as new international buyers (including Tunisian, Lybian, Italian and Irish customers), were very active.

The succes on the track of horses presented at Osarus sales has also contributed greatly to these results, with LES BEAUFS as the top of the list after his win in the Prix Royal Oak (Gr.1).

The activity was supported throughout the two days sale by international bloodstock agents such as MAB Agency, Agence FIPS, Hautières Bloodstock (Guillaume Gorse), Guy Petit, Paul Nataf (24 lots) as well as trainers Keven Borgel, Nicolas de Balanda and Guy Cherel.

Ventes Osarus - Avec Les Beaufs pour locomotive (Art. Paris-Turf)

Prêts à surfer sur la vague Les Beaufs, impressionnant vainqueur du Prix Royal-Oak, dimanche dernier, après avoir été présenté, yearling, à la faveur de la première édition des ventes du Lion-d’Angers, les animateurs d’Osarus escomptent obtenir de bons résultats lors du rendez-vous fixé aux acheteurs lundi et mardi sur l’hippodrome de l’Isle-Briand.

Les ventes Osarus sont dorénavant bien installées dans le paysage. Pornichet, au printemps, pour une vente de 2 ans présentés montés, La Teste, en septembre, pour une vente de yearlings aux origines précoces, Le Lion-d’Angers, en novembre, pour une vente mixte, sur deux jours, qui ne demande qu’à s’épanouir. Emmanuel Viaud, responsable commercial et auctioneer des vacations Osarus, ne cache pas une certaine confiance, à la veille d’entrer une nouvelle fois en action en terre angevine : « Les ventes d’octobre, à Deauville, ont été bonnes, commente-t-il. Notre catalogue est varié, éclectique, supérieur, qualitativement, à celui de l’an dernier ou de 2010. Une chose est sûre : les acheteurs auront le choix, tant lors de la vente de yearlings, lundi, que lors de la vente d’élevage, mardi. Notre option est cent pour cent « franco-française », avec des yearlings donnant tous droit aux primes. Quant à l’ASSELCO (N.D.L.R. : Association des Eleveurs de Chevaux de l’Ouest), elle continue –nous l’en remercions– à financer notre bonus Osarus, soit 5.000 euros pour le propriétaire du premier cheval gagnant en plat et idem en obstacle. Il n’y a plus qu’à souhaiter que les courtiers et les entraîneurs aient des ordres d’achat et que les investisseurs régionaux en particulier jouent le jeu et soutiennent une vente qui leur est tout de même un peu dédiée. »

134 yearlings sont inscrits au catalogue, lundi, dont le frère utérin de Les Beaufs et nombre d’autres « papiers » à la fois intéressants et « mélangés », ce qui ne fait que renforcer leur attrait. Osarus n’a, de toute façon, plus à faire ses preuves en matière de réussite « post-ventes », y compris au Lion-d’Angers, par lequel sont passés depuis deux ans, outre Les Beaufs, le classique Valdo Béré, la double placée de listed Absolutly Me et les actuels valeureux 2 ans Winna Chope, Flauta Magica Has et Major de Tizzano. Quant à la vacation de mardi, elle rassemblera 90 lots, s’adressant principalement aux éleveurs désireux de renouveler ou d’augmenter leur jumenterie, ce qu’ils feront d’autant plus volontiers qu’ils auront bien vendu la veille.

Carlotamix et le triplé Osarus à Auteuil

A l'approche des ventes de La Teste, Osarus fait un carton dans le temple de l'obstacle

Trois des huit vainqueurs de la réunion d'Auteuil de ce mardi 4 septembre sont passés sur le ring des ventes Osarus dont le fils de Carlotamix, Gémix, brillant lauréat de la Listed du jour, le Prix Mélanos, une course de haies pour les 4 ans. Amusant pour une vente dont l'édition 2012 aura lieu le 13 septembre (en direct sur France Sire TV) et pourtant très orienté sur les 2 ans précoces...

La réforme du système des primes à l'éleveur fait beaucoup de bruit dans le microcosme avec la démission des grands haras commerciaux de Normandie du Syndicat National. Il ne s'agit pourtant pas d'opposer grands contre petits éleveurs, mais de procéder à un réequilibrage. Moins de 5% des éleveurs ont un effectif supérieur à 5 poulinières et 70% des 4 242 élevages n'ont qu'une seule poulinière. Les enjeux ne sont évidemment pas les mêmes. Les mécanismes de gestion des grands haras ne sont pas transférables aux petits éleveurs pour qui les primes sont fondamentales. Ne devient-il pas alors nécessaire de donner un petit avantage à une grande majorité d'éleveurs français, sachant que de toutes les façons, la majorité des futurs "conçus" n'auront que peu de place sur le marché spéculatif des ventes de yearlings Européennes ?

Nous sommes d'accord avec Monsieur Pierric ROUXEL lorsqu'il souligne que "le programme des courses en France n'est rendu financièrement possible que par l'apport de recettes générées par l'ensemble des courses de niveau D et en dessous, dont les acteurs sont majoritairement conçus en France". A ce titre, les ventes OSARUS se considèrent à terme comme une sorte de "fournisseur officiel du PMU". Lire le communiqué dans son intégralité : cliquez ici


A l'occasion de la 4ème étape du Défi du Galop, Monsieur Philippe BOUCHARA, Président du Syndicat National des Propriétaires, Monsieur Hervé CHAMARTY, Président de l'Association des Propriétaires du Sud-ouest et Monsieur Yves FREMIOT, Président du Syndicat des Eleveurs du Sud-ouest remettront en présence des autorités locales et de Monsieur Bertrand BELINGUIER, Président de France-Galop, un chèque de 10 000€ à Monsieur Patrice CHEVALIER, propriétaire de MADERIENNE (King's Best), vainqueur du Prix de l'Isle Briand à Angers le 29 avril 2012.

Rappelons que cette prime récompensant le propriétaire du premier cheval gagnant vendu par Osarus le 15 septembre 2011 à la vente de yearlings de La Teste de Buch rassemble la participation de l'Association des Propriétaires du Sud-ouest, le Syndicat des Eleveurs du Sud-ouest et pour la première fois cette année, le Syndicat National des Propriétaires et a pour objectif de promouvoir les chevaux nés et élevés en France.


Many well known personalities of the international racing industry were present for the first French breeze-up to take place on an all-weather surface. The sale was conducted at the very functional new racecourse at Pornichet, which proved to be ideal for this type of event.


A successful sale for Larissa Kneip who sold her 5 two-year-olds amongst which the sale-topping filly VILNA (Slickly), sold for €30 000 to Sylvain Vidal for Gérard Augustin-Normand, she will be trained by Yann Barberot. Larissa Kneip also topped the Osarus Lion d'Angers sale in 2010.

The new sale was well supported by the majority of consignors who were pleased with the results, learn more : Click here


The young French auction house OSARUS innovates again by organising its first breeze-up which will take place on the all weather track of Pornichet on Wednesday 25th April 2012.

Pornichet racecourse, a high-quality location !

Pornichet is located on the "côte d'Amour" (coast of Love), in a modern and internationally renowned seaside town beside some of the nicest beaches of Europe. Together with the professional and warm welcome of the racecourse management team, all is present to attract trainers and owners for this new spring sale.

In view of the increase of races on this type of track, it seemed opportune to organise a two-year-old sale on one of the most recent all weather tracks in France.


Approximately fifty two-year-olds will breeze in front of the stands. Amoung these are : n°42 one of the last sons of ANABAA presented by Frédéric Daguzan-Garros, n° 28 a male by BIG SHUFFLE presented by Marie Laurence Oget, n°45 a male by INDIAN ROCKET presented by Severine Quéré.

Osarus, la petite agence qui monte

Article de Pierre Champion, Paris-Turf le 12 janvier 2012

Arqana n'est plus la seule agence de vente, au galop, en France. Depuis un peu plus de trois ans, Osarus est dans le jeu, où elle est en train, progressivement, de se faire une place, en premier lieu grâce à son rendez-vous, désormais incontournable, de La Teste, à la mi-septembre. Et sans doute n'est-ce qu'un début...

Osarus a vu le jour en 2008. De la volonté de proposer une autre voie que celle d'Arqana, une autre philosophie, aussi, plus proche de l'élevage français à proprement parler. Animée par quatre actionnaires associés - l'ex-jockey et entraîneur lyonnais Guy Blasco, Nadja Govaert, Frédérique Lingua et Emmanuel Viaud, ces deux-là anciens de l'Agence  Française, à Deauville - , la nouvelle agence, soutenue par les associations d'éleveurs et de propriétaires, n'a pas tardé à trouver sa voie en jouant la carte des yearlings d'origine française, lire la suite : cliquez ici



GUY PETIT, the most active bloodstock agent of the year, purchase for a total amount of € 114 000. In second position comes the Irish pinhooker Con MARNANE, his presence at La Teste and Le Lion d'Angers reveal the attractiveness of the catalogue and the professionalism of these sales. With 3 purchases, Jean-Claude ROUGET attains the highest average price at € 25 667. Read more...


OSARUS favours precocity for the La Teste September sale and the good results of horses sold, such as DARLING STORY who won the Prix Delahante (L.) on the 13th November 2010 at Marseille-Borély, confirm the quality of horses offered at OSARUS sales. OSARUS also attempted a National Hunt sale at Pau on the 17th January 2009, with half-satisfying results. However, several lots offered at this sale have since shown talent on the tracks in France as well as overseas :

• VICBILH (Loup Solitaire), winner of the Prix Sambristan at Enghien on the 17th November 2010 by 8 lengths and already winner of a Listed race, earning a total of € 113 970.

• NADIYA DE LA VEGA (Lost World), winner of the Highflyer Bloodstock Four Years Old Novices’Chase (Class 3) at Warwick on the 17th November 2010, made an impressive start to her career in the UK, winning by 13 lengths. From four outings she boasts 2 wins and 2 places.

• KING DU LEMO (Indian River), 2nd in the Prix Antoine de Palaminy at Pau (L.) and 4th  of the Prix Triquerville at Auteuil (L.) on the 30th October 2010.

• MASSENA (Marju), trained by Jehan BERTRAN de BALANDA, 2nd for his debut at Auteuil in the Prix Emilius on the 30th October 2010. Bought back for € 48 000 by his owner at Pau in January 2009, he made the top price of the Autumn St Cloud sales 22 months later, when he was sold for €150 000.

• PRESIDENT NOIR (Lavirco), winner of the Prix de Menton (hurdles) at Compiègne on the 19th November 2010. He has earned a total of € 79 520.

For the third consecutive year, the Osarus yearling sale was held at La Teste in the South West of France.
Before the sales, on Wednesday evening, a cocktail party was organized in partnership with the casino of Arcachon. Thus, all guests had the possibility to discuss in a relaxed and musical atmosphere.

On Thursday, after a country buffet offered by Jean Biraben and the breeders of the South West, the sale began at 2 pm to end at 7.30 pm.

A record percentage of yearlings sold
Out of 111 yearlings consigned, 91 found purchasers (5 in private sales) representing 82% of horses sold for an average price of 9 052 ? and a turnover of ? 818 500 (? 584 500 in 2009). All figures therefore show a sharp increase compared to last year.

The top price of ? 28 000 was paid by Bertrand Dutruel on behalf of Patrick Dreux for lot 80, a filly by Ski Chief consigned by Haras des Faunes. Coming from the same stud, lot 10, an Indian Rocket filly, was knocked down for ? 27 000 to Jean-Claude Rouget.

An active market
To begin the afternoon, Guy Petit bought a Panis colt consigned by Haras de Bourgeauville for ?17 000. This Normandy based stud, which was present at the sale for the first time, was satisfied to sell the 2 yearlings presented.
The sale attracted new buyers such as Sylvain Vidal (very present on the european market), Patrick Dreux, Alexandre Fracas, Joël Boisnard and Patrick Perraudin.
Regular buyers remained faithful to Osarus including foreigners, parisians, South West buyers, trainers from the West, South East and Centre East.
